Danish commercial coffee machine maker Scanomat just showed off its latest invention at GastroNord today in Stockholm. And I have to say, itís awe-inspiring enough for me to book a plane ticket to Sweden. The TopBrewer combines everything you could ever want in an automatic espresso machine in a truly beautiful package.

Check out the introduction video on YouTube. This is quite a gorgeous machine, but do Scanomat machines have a good reputation? If so then I need to convince my boss to get one.

The super autos need their own board.

It has two grinders, one for espresso and one for coffee.   Definitely a step above the common super automatic machines that I see around my office.   Just out of curiousity, does anyone know how much it actually cost?

I think you have to contact Scanomat for a quote. I also wonder how much repairs cost. :/

Read the comments posted after the video for a laugh.  Here is a good one:

Step 2: Bring girl over
Step 3: Show her this
Step 4: Have sex
